I'm deciding between Villanova School of Business and Penn. State Smeal, i know Villanova has a better Business week ranking but I was wondering if there is really that much of a difference between the two and if nova is worth the extra $28000/year... but besides the obvious cost differences which is the better business school and which has a better finance program

    In my humble opinion, it is very RARE when a school such as Villanova is worth $28,000 more per year over Penn State. They would have to make one heck of a strong case in order to convice me otherwise. Remember, that is $100,000+ over four years more! If you invest this $100,000 for 40 years till your kid is ready for retirement, it probably would be worth about $3,000,000 using todays returns.

    Bottom Line: Unless Villanova has some special program that isn't available at Penn State, take the money and run to Penn State!
